Lauren Caspian is NPR’s third most popular host. He’s a well-meaning, hypocritical nimrod, just like you and me. He’s also a stop-motion puppet. Each episode follows the making of an episode of Lauren’s show In the Know, in which Lauren conducts in-depth interviews with real world human guests. Lauren collaborates with a diverse crew of NPR staff. They are also puppets and nimrods.

In the Know Will Land on Peacock Later This Month

In the Know features a voice cast that includes Zach Woods (Silicon Valley, The Office) as “Lauren Caspian,” host of the “In The Know” radio program, Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-Head, Silicon Valley, King of the Hill) as “Sandy,” culture critic, Caitlin Reilly (Loot, Hacks) as “Fabian,” researcher and fact-checker, Charlie Bushnell (Diary of a Future President, Percy Jackson and The Olympians) as “Chase,” college intern, J. Smith-Cameron (Succession, Rectify) as “Barb,” co-executive producer of “In The Know,” and Carl Tart (Grand Crew) as “Carl,” sound engineer.

Zach Woods and Brandon Gardner previously released a joint statement about the show, in which they declared their love for public radio and their desire to leave their “respective echo chambers” and connect with all different kinds of people.

“We love public radio. It’s engaging and comforting. But it also reflects aspects of ourselves that we’re embarrassed by. Which is why we created a show about an NPR host who is, sadly, an only slightly exaggerated version of ourselves.

We’re privileged, well intentioned, guilty hypocrites. We buy ethically-sourced dog treats and have them delivered by people who are penalized for bathroom breaks. We put “No Justice No Peace” signs next to our home security lawn decals. We’re sanctimonious doofuses who should be ridiculed more.

As we get more isolated in our respective echo chambers, we’re desperate to connect with people who are different from us through honest conversation and humor. We try to provide both on the show. (And even if you think our comedy is literal trash, we hope you’ll enjoy the gorgeous animation from the stop-motion geniuses at ShadowMachine.)

We want this show to start funny, scary, friendly conversations. We want to portray people who are possibly irredeemable but hopefully still loveable. And at the center of all of this is a frail overconfident male puppet with a woman’s name: Lauren Caspian.”

In the Know is due to premiere exclusively on Peacock on January 25, 2024.
